    looks very nice, but many here will balk at the SD615
    for $200, it does seem like a pretty good deal. I'm considering it

    It does look quite nice... And includes all the high end phone bells and whistles (finger print etc)

    Maybe because the OP is comparing two totally different devices. 5X is a 5.5" phone so it's not targeting the same people. Not only that but there lots of differences aside from price that make them two completely different choices (and no EU LTE bands, BTW).

    Only downside i can think of is the OS Huawei usually runs, bit of an apple/android love baby.

    This is a bit of a trend among Asian phone companies, especially those more centered in the home markets... ColorOS is a pretty good example of that.

    Yup, but sadly tbe thing that keeps many buyers away (at least me from buying a mate 7)

    HydrogenOS anyone? ;)

    I have a Mate 7 and an Honor 7. With Nova Launcher it just runs like any other Android phone with App drawer.

    Well may be true but for me it came to two things; Os and the inhouse cpu they used in the mate.

    I actually wanted to say that one, thanks! :p

    I still have mixed feelings about Huawei, though. I still think they lack a proper strategy for markets abroad.

    Exactly my reason to favor one plus 2 over honor7. Maybe in reality it is not a big deal other than the most annoying thing i.e. the missing rolodex of "recent apps". Other concern is the update speed, I think Huwaei is much slowed than OP pushing to latest updates even Honor7 recently made to Android 5.0.

    That camera bulge though. I still don't get why manufacturers prefer that over making a phone 2 mm thicker with a bigger battery.

    probably marketing. look we got a 5mm phone... but the bulge is probably not even 1mm. i have that bulge on my note 5 and i would say its not that bad... but extra 2mm on a phone is pretty thick i would say.

    For the price, its looks good. US LTE supported which is great for the NA market.
    No EU LTE bands so not a no go here.
